Overview

Have you seen these headlines at your local checkout aisle? “Make Over Your Body: Exercises that can make you look taller and leaner in time for school.”

•“PRETTY, EASY MAKEUP: LOOK GORGEOUS—FAST!”
•“Beauty School: The key to having flirty eyes.”
•“Fall Shopping: Styles that will get you noticed.”
•“BEAUTY MARKS: This flirty body art is a sexy but subtle way to get noticed this summer.”

These are just a few of the “voices” that speak to young women every day from TV ads, popular teen and fashion magazines, and from their friends. So what is a girl, and particularly a young Christian girl supposed to do? Is beauty good or bad? Should girls want it, think about it, strive for it, or try to crawl into a cave and ignore it?

In Designed by God, Regina Franklin takes you on a journey from confusion to clarity about the perplexing subjects of beauty, modesty, and self-image.

If you believe what you see and hear in the culture around you, beauty takes work, costs money, and makes you a slave to the opinions of those who want to control how you look, what you wear, what you eat, and what you apply to your body.

But true beauty requires no such thing. Beauty isn’t achieved by knowing what to wear but by knowing who you are: the temple of the living God.  Beauty is God’s truth shining into and through all who are willing to develop a relationship with the One who created us in His image and who wants us to reflect the beauty of His radiant glory.
